Be Yourself

Wow! It's Thursday again! Today I have two new cards for you, using the set Be Yourself. This set was a Stamp of the Month a while back, and now it's in the brand new summer catalog. I am THRILLED, because I LOVE this stamp set!!! It always works well with the bright, bold color schemes I like to use! This color combo is Outdoor Denim, Bubblegum, and Kiwi. . .and I must admit, Kiwi is not available anymore, and I try not to use product that isn't available - BUT. . .I ADORE kiwi. It is one of my most FAVORITE colors ever. So my dear mama, and favorite CTMH consultant helped me stock up on it before it was gone!!!! But you could easily substitute Citrus Leaf, and it would probably look JUST ABOUT as good!! ;)
This second card I put together using scraps sitting on my desk from the first card. (The first card is based on Tami Mayberry's sketch for next week at Card Positioning Systems . . but shhhh!) I hope you like them both! And if you give this (or a similar) color combo a try, leave us a link! My mom and I would both love to see what you create!
See you next week!
TIPS: use your scraps and make a second card, while all of your supplies are out!
Sand the edges of cardstock (especially textured cardstock!) for an easy finishing touch.

Very fun! I love the tip about using your scraps while they are still out. Good idea!

Great colors! I always really liked Kiwi too. And very clever idea to interlock the girls' arms on the first card.
